some hard core habits. Let me tell you, I have some hard core bad decision making habits when it comes to eating.
I am that girl that loves to go out and eat and enjoy myself no matter what. I will toss my goals aside for a glass of wine or that great girly drink. I never turn down those amazing appetizers, and since were out, let's pretend we are celebrating and let's go for a great meal. That great meal turns into something that is creamy, cheesy a high caloric meal.
I usually will take home some of my dinner so I can enjoy that amazing dessert that is on special.
Just looking at what I am writing, it's no wonder why I struggle the way I do...my decision making needs work. Well, what really needs work is how I am feeling about myself. Clearly I don't think much about myself; otherwise I would know that I was worth it not to
eat all that junk. I have to say, now that I have made the decision to write this blog and share my story, I am making decision for both me and you. I realized that I have to start caring about myself and making better food decisions, so that you too will start doing the same. I don't want this blog to be about falling off the wagon and never reaching my
goal. That will never help you realize that you can achieve whatever goal you have for yourself.
Yesterday was a bit of a struggle, however I did it!!!! I was to meet a friend for lunch, at a great Mexican restaurant where I work. I was prepared to have fish tacos without all the added calories. I was prepared to drink water with lemon or a plain ice tea. Sounds good right....well I ate a very light breakfast, because I did not want too many calories going in my mouth for the day. By 11:00 am I was starving...my stomach wanted to jump out my throat and grab whatever was close...but I drank water anticipating for lunch. I got a text plans
changed, I was to meet her at her house because she was not feeling well...we chatted for quite a while and had to start heading back to work. Still starving, I was trying to figure out what to do...my normal thought was to go to Taco Bell and grab a bean burrito...but I did not want to blog I ate Taco Bell....I would lose you for sure...hahahha So, I went to Culvers
and got the Strawberry Fields Grilled Chicken Salad without dressing and a non sweetened Ice Tea. I made the decision to not cave into my circumstance and to eat as healthy as possible. It wasn't junk or anything that I would be regretting writing on this page.
So I realized all the decisions I am starting to really make. It is Friday morning, the weekend is here and the graduation I am attending is tomorrow. Now, this is tricky...I always stop for my bottles of red wine for the weekend....we order pizza and do whatever
the wind takes us to do. Not this weekend. I am starting to plan my attack on all the temptations that will be facing me. Now I also know, if I cut out everything at some point I will fall off the wagon....so I am planning for either a glass of wine or a piece of
graduation cake. These to items are one of my most favorite things to consume. But I will not have both....I have to make that decision when the time comes.
So, I am asking you to think about what it is you are really striving for...what is your ultimate goal you are working on achieving. Know that you are worth it and you can have anything you put your mind too. Start thinking about those decisions...are they going to leave you feeling bad about yourself...or are they going to leave you feeling FANASTIC, ACCOMPLISHED, EMPOWERED about yourself.
Think about it!!!! Start thinking about the decisions you are making. Think about how you are worth it, and you deserve nothing less than the BEST!!! I know you are worth it, and so am I. Tell yourself everyday in the mirror "I am worth it", "I am beautiful", "I can do it". You will be amazed at yourself when you see and feel what you can do.
Alright my friends go into today and make great decisions for you. Know that you are the most important person at the time of making those decisions. And what make you FEEL and LOOK CONFIDENT!!!
